Another video with dynamic brakes at the T canards
According to Christian, the difference is remarkable. The gym he's flying in is low, without brakes he couldn't finish the downward maneuvers.
I don't know if it's useable with bigger acro planes, maybe F3A planes would benefit a little, but for 3D... i dont know...

that is a sweet implementation, very cool.
I know a guy that put air brakes on a 50cc 3D plane. it was a *lot* of hassle and weight without much payoff. It had two square feet of flat plate drag deploying a full 90 degrees to the airflow... alone the downlines are slower, couple it will a roll on the downline and it looks like these foamies. My air brakes were also on the wings, and were intended to help yaw maneuvering in 3D flight... but all in all it wasn't really worth the hassle.
Back in the 70's, Hanno Prettner had air brakes on the fuselage of his Curare... making use of t-canalysers would make more drag, but again, it's added weight and a fair amount of hassle.
...but that first video, I would say it has a lot of merit for indoor foamies. very cool.
